Driver's Daily Worksheet

Driver Fatigue Self-Assessment

  • Do you struggle to keep your head up?

  • Are your eyelids drooping, or your eyes going out of focus?

  • Are you relying on caffeine for alertness?

  • Have you been missing exits or road signs?

  • Have you been braking late or slowing unintentionally?

  • Is your mind wandering?

  • Has the rest since your last shift been inadequate?

  • Remember, fatigue is the number one contributor of heavy vehicle accidents. It's not worth the risk.

Fitness for Work

  • Sign to Declare that you are (1) not under the influence of alcohol, drugs or fatigue, and (2) not suffering from physical, medical or psychological conditions which may impair your ability to drive or make decisions.

  • NOTE: If you detect symptoms of fatigue during self-assessment, extend your rest break. If detected during transport, you must stop all driving activities as soon as safely practicable and rest. Notify your supervisor and make arrangements as required.
